This caught me by surprise. Thought she was maybe 5'5 but admittedly this was when I thought Ja Rule was about 5'8 range way back. Can't believe she just recently turned 38! I remember that once the Spice Girls went into hiatus all the girls at school jumped on the Ashanti bandwagon. That's my distinct memory of her aside from the big-hits with Ja Rule during the early 00s.

no, Ashanti is nowhere near the height of Beyonce. Ashanti is near 5'3' and Beyonce is 5'6'

Ashanti is atleast 5ft 4in.5. She is about the same height of Beyonce (5ft5in-6inch)and also in the movies Ashanti has played in she is like 5'5 and she don't be having heels on. Thanks

Personally, Ashanti S. Douglas is not really that short, she has to be atleast 5'4.5 to 5'6.5. In her rain on me performance, without shoes she stands atleast 5'4.5. So the information on these other websites are inaccurate. So get at

Ashanti is 5'5. My cousin sings as a backup singer for her. My cousin is 5'3 and ashanti stands at least 2 inches taller then her.

Sure, measure a girl with pumps on by the shortest guy in the room. That's reliable enough for me. lol.

Part of the fame, for women, is having a tight shoe game, and what is the name of that hot shoe designer that makes all of those flats? Oh yeah, he/she does not exist yet.
Catch Ashanti or Mary J. Blige in candid pics, not the glamour-puss shots when everything is put together by their cousin/stylist (down to their underwear), and then i will believe the great heights some credit them with when walking on stilts.

BTW, Ashanti was just on Regis and Kelly on the streets of NYC and from the pic angles I saw she was the shortest of the trio, stilts included.

She is about 5'3", no less. Ja Rule is not that much taller than her.

Wow I thoought that Ashanti was about 5'7 or 5'8. She's kinda short. It's a amazing that Rihanna is taller than she.

there is no no no way that she is 5'3"! Have you seen John Tucker Must Die? Brittany Snow is only 5'2" or 5'3" and she is much taller that Ashanti.

I do think she is 5'3 or shorter i dont think shes 5'5..she admits in interveiws that shes short and i dont think she would be saying that if she was average height of 5'5.
YeahItsMe said on 26/Jan/07
No, Beyonce is taller than Ashanti. Ashanti is really short, so 5'3" is pretty accurate. She's not 5'5", because I'm like 5'5" and a half/5'6", and she's way shorter than me lol.

I watched the episode of Sabrina the Teenage Witch today where Ashanti made a guest appearance and appeared to be 1-2 inches taller than Melissa Joan Hart. I think 5'3" is probably accurate for her, since Melissa is listed at 5'2". At the most she's a half inch or inch taller than listed here.

Anonymous, sometimes song lyrics aren't really that reliable as far as height goes. I think he mentions 5'5" just for the sake of flowing. If you listen to Mya's "Free", she says the exact same thing: "5'5, brown eyes".

I have absolutely NO idea how tall Ashanti is. I would have thought she was like 5'3". She looks kinda small.

Ben said on 16/Nov/06
When i saw her, she looked 5'10" during the concert, but when i met her backstage she had taken her high heels off and she was slightly taller than my 12 year old brother he is 5'0"

[Padraig: You got to love those 9 inch heels eh?]
